BBBlood - Bloody Mess? Yes! ~ Romford last night + Updates

Good morning or good evening... whatever.

First off played a very cool show last night in Romford. It wasn't a normal BBBlood show it was a 'Sweaty Days' gig. This means I played along side the legendary Rupert Murder (aka Wet Dreams and a hundred other names.) It went really well we had a few issues with sound levels at one point but it all worked out cool. Drinking loads before setting up gear is not a great move but it all worked out.

We got to Romford and it's not really changed much since I was there last year but it was little things that you notice. Fuck I don't want to ramble on too much but it was just little eerie to be back there but when the booze kicked in it was business as normal. Psyched up to make some loud noise we took the stage and layed down a slab of noise boogie wonderland experience. I think the people enjoyed it, later today I'm going to listen to play back of what we recorded.

Some Photo's Thanks to Tarik for taking them..

On directly after us was Tiger Piss, who was amazing as ever he played some pure tonal bliss tricks and looped chants and improv drumming beats. It was excellent and the finishing move was to spill his pint all over the floor almost blowing up Jay's power sockets. Hehe, it was very cool.

After some mopping up and a few more pints necked, was the turn for Made out of wool to take the stage. it's the first time I've seen them with a full line up and it was a treat. My minds a little fuzzy but I was literally soaking in the sound waves very cool set. Yes I know I said soaking like I need some kinda bath or something, but it did have that effect over me. Very cool!

I hope the BBBlood/Made Out Of Wool big band cd can be processed quicker, as I'm itching to release some of their music.

Then after the 'noise' played it was just a normal club night, two bands played afterwards but I didn't watch them play, probably because of my drunken state at the time. After that it was more drinking and catching up with people I know. Very cool night.

I'd really like to thank everyone individually for turning up last night. It was nice to see so many people I know at a show, hopefully Romford will have another night of noise. Well that's wishful thinking really.

But thanks go to Jay, Louis, Rich, Barnes and Big Muff Regan. everyone else I chatted with, embraced and got drinks from.

Here's the flyer...
